Notes: Best Verizon Device with Double or Triple the battery!Great device, but MHS291L has even better batteryIf battery life is important, spend the extra $50 and get the 4620LENOT recommended when you can get the 4620 for FreeBest DEVICE on the market, but Verizon has a LOT more LTE coverageBest Sprint Device, but the network is lacking compared to Verizon or AT&TIF you need a Sprint USB device, this is the one to getNOT recommended. Get the Tri-Fi instead if you go with SprintFree Amazon

Notes: Great choice for the best and fastest coverageNo Contract is great, but for the best 4G LTE coverage, Verizon is still the best by farOnly T-Mobile USB to consider, others are slower.One of the Best Plans on the market IF you live in a Sprint 4G area - UNLIMITED* 4G Usage! (they *may throttle 4G speeds after 10GB a month)One of the Best Plans on the market IF you live in a Sprint 4G area - UNLIMITED* 4G Usage! (they *may throttle 4G speeds after 10GB a month)DO NOT Buy this device as it's 3G ONLY
